news. new nuclear test overnight from a defiant north korea. nbc is live at the pentagon. mick, what's the latest? >> reporter: good morning, savannah. we've been here before. this one has set off some serious alarm bells. first of all, early readings indicate that this nuclear device exploded by the north koreans may have been anywhere from three to six times more power than than previous tests. at the same time the north koreans claim they were able to achieve that with a much smaller device. that would indicate that they could be making progress in miniaturizing a nuclear weapon and it could be put on a missile and theoretically launched at the you states. no one is confirming that, but it got everyone's attention. this blast got the immediate and sharp response from the white house. president obama says it threatens. u.s. national security. he says the united states will continue to take steps necessary to defend ourselves and our allies. and as matt mentioned a moment ago, the security council at the u.n. meeting at this moment to discuss tightening and increasing sanctions agai

to see you. i wanted to put this up. this is what's on the cover of "usa today." pentagon warns of huge cuts. when you think about what's going on in washington, right now, and you think about the sequester that may or may not happen, and you think about your history in washington, do you think that we will have the sequester? >> andrew, i don't know. i think it's a very complicated situation. i think we had a great opportunity and i actually thought there was some reasonable chance it might happen, which was to have a grand bargain that could have addressed what is really unsustainable and deeply dangerous long-term fiscal situation and i think if we had done that, not only would be useful for the long run but i think could have generated confidence in the shorter run and promote jobs now. now instead of that we have a happen has 5rd process. a sequester we're facing. it's a terrible piece of legislation. it arbitrarily cuts defense and nondefense without thoughtfully doing so. instead of being phased in so we'd have more room for recovery, it hits abruptly. and it's far, far from clea
